  • @anotherusername said in Let's create DUMB PASSWORD RULES:

    Passwords may only be changed or reset by calling Customer Service.

    Who will email it to you at the end of the call for your convenience.

    Unfortunately your mail account password is only synced with your main account every 48 hours.

  • Password resets apply to all user accounts. Only one password per server installation.

    Usernames are to be used on login instead of passwords (Jef Raskin? Who is that, and why would he want to do it the other way around?)

    All password changes must first be forwarded to the deposed Prime Minister of Nigeria for confirmation before use.

  • Passwords may not be used more than three (3) times after which they must be changed. You may not change your password more than once per week.

  • @scholrlea said in Let's create DUMB PASSWORD RULES:

    Password must cut down a tree with a herring before being accepted.

    ...and must not contain the characters I and T in sequence.

  • A strong password is vital to the protection of your identity, but simple machine-enforced rules are not effective in ensuring strong passwords. To ensure your security, your requested password will be sent to a company in Kerblekistan where a real person will verify that it is sufficiently hard for a hacker to guess.

    You may rest assured that the highest standards of password security are enforced, as we also send your username, real name, previous passwords, date of birth, place of birth, mother's maiden name, and pet's name, to allow common security pitfalls to be detected.

    Password change will not take effect until password has been verified.

  • Password must not be the same as any other password you use.
    Please enter all your passwords for

    • social media
    • email
    • banking
    • online shopping
    • entertainment

    At least one entry in each category is required. For verification purposes, we also require your usernames.
